The latest version of the ULD adhesive sensor, GDX 1000, performs the anti-glue function and detects where the glue is not required. Talking to IPP, Vaibhav Kulkarni, business head, gluing systems, acknowledges, ‘‘The company focuses on innovations and the quality of the product which can do best for the customer in the long run. Not focusing particularly on the cost, as other products in the market may provide cheaper solutions.’’

Discussing the technology shift, Dhananjay Jadhav, head technical, Baumer, says, “In India, the industry 4.0 norms are coming up, and we are delivering this ready technology for the core of the industry. We are giving customers all the related information and feedback for the sensors and glue application which customers can themselves take care of, ahead of regulations. Now people want adhesives and applications that are more reliable and faster to use.”

Pan India, Baumer has more than 750 installations for folding cartons, the print finish industry, and corrugation.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
